Toronto Catholic District School Board

Academics – English Department

Every Bishop Allen Student is an English student. Our English Department offers students an enriching program with opportunities and activities that help bring the texts being studied in the classroom to life and that help students develop their literacy skills. As an enhancement of day to day classroom activities, English students are also given the opportunity to attend dramatic productions of the plays studied in the courses.

English students also have the chance to meet professionals from the worlds of media and literature. In past years, the Writer’s Craft classes have hosted authors who share their experiences in the publishing industry through the Students Writers and Teachers Program. Media classes welcome speakers from the advertising, film and television industry.

Literacy preparation encompasses all subject areas. In order to help our Gr.10 students prepare for the literacy test, we provide them with an intensive study of all areas of reading and writing. We begin this analysis and practice in Gr.9 and we continue with an intensive preparation program in Gr.10.
 
Beyond our regular program, Bishop Allen is proud to be able to offer our students an Advanced Placement pathway. AP English classes allow our students to enrich the breadth of their knowledge and experience, and they also have the opportunity to earn university credit.
